The Toothbrush of Damascus

Reader comment on item: Fin de RĂ©gime in Syria?

The "toothbrush" (Bashir) of Damascus depends on his tank division to maintain and enforce his Stalinist police state. 3 IAF sortiies, lasting 45 minutes, would topple the regime.

As Michael Oren pointed out, this should have been part of the strategy in the summer of 2006 along with the bombing of the "toothbrush's" Palace when it was alleged that little turbaned Hezbollah Nazi, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, was hiding in the "toothbrush's" toilet.

So far as I know, Bashshar is a proper name and does not mean "toothbrush."
